I think you may have to get the King Headz mount or similiar to move the motor ahead. I have never used the stock mount so I'm not 100% sure, but the KH mount has two different mounting positions for the engine.

I've used Mugen clutches in the 8ight with stock mounts. You must use the Losi clutch bell for the reach, if you use the King (or others) mounts to move the engine forward you could run out of room between the carb and the center diff plate, especially with an OS. Also measure the diameter of the Hyper's flywheel, it could be too large.
